About Fund a Need

Each year, The Board of Visitors selects an area within Children’s National that has a direct need, to fund via a raise the paddle during the Live portion of our auction. Our Board will be identifying the 2020 Fund a Need at a later date.

Most recently, at A Vintage Affair 2019, the event paddle raise provided enough funds to equip the bassinets with a special camera, in the Children’s National neonatal intensive care unit – the No. 1 NICU in the country. These cameras enable parents to see and bond with their child when they can’t be by their bedside, whether because of medical complications, work responsibilities or military service.

Each moment away from a baby in the NICU is difficult, but because of supporters like you, families can stay connected every moment of the day. By joining in support of A Vintage Affair, you help meet the unique needs of the children treated in the NICU and in every unit. Each child who walks through our hospital’s doors can count on Children’s National because they can count on you.
